    Hello,

     

    I was wondering if there is a way that I can import existing data into Jotform without have to upload it, entry by entry into the Jotform page.  We already have this inofrmation on a spreadsheet, and I am just looking for the simple way to get the information over to the Jotform stystem where it looks like we are planning on storing it.

     

    Thank you!

    Hi there, 

    Can you copy the data onto a Google spreadsheet?

    If you would like, you can create a form with us and integrate it with Google spreadsheet.

    This integration will generate a spreadsheet (after the first submission) on your Google Drive with the headings corresponding to the fields from your form.

    Once this is generated, you can copy and paste your previous data on to it (without editting the headdings) and all the new submissions will be appended on to it afterwards.  

    This will allow you to keep all your data in one spreadsheet.

    Would this be a solution?  If so, here is a guide to help you with the Google Spreadsheet integration:
